I think the detox was delayed......

Well, I had good intentions. Always seems that way. However, I have found myself making really unhealthy choices this week. My uncle unexpectedly died on Monday. I know that I am sometimes an emotional eater. In other words, to try not to think about things, I will distract myself with food. Or I will eat to increase the release of endorphins, to feel better. The loss of my uncle triggers many sad feelings about the loss of my own husband 4 years ago, and I have been trying to be very supportive of my aunt. I just have not felt like working/focusing on the diet or the exercise. It has been the last thing on my mind.

To top it all off, I was away this weekend, at a hotel that had food included in the weekend. Since of course I was not eating healthy all week, I extended that this weekend. So silly.

Anyway, I feel like I REALLY need to start eating healthy again. I don't feel great when I am indulging in the foods that are not good for me, and I am ready to get back on the treadmill too. I have to do it. And I will. Next week I have to weigh in again for the challenge. At least I will have one good week under my belt. Hope you are all doing better than I am!!


  1. I am sorry for your loss. Give yourself time to grieve but make sure you are taking care of you while you do it.

  2. I'm so sorry, Sue! Let us know if there's anything we can do to help make things easier for you with all of this going on, okay?

  3. Sorry for your loss, Sue :(

    Take it slow this week to give yourself some time to get back into it. Maybe go for the exercise first - it's a good stress reliever.

    Glad you're back - I missed ya!
